Robyn says, "I have never written a short story before, so just wanted to try it to see if I could actually do it. Quite a challenge I have discovered!"
I think you'll agree with me that Weathering the Storm proves that she has a real talent for writing a short story.
Below is a short bio that Robyn has provided to accompany her entry:
I recently retired and am enjoying a new lease of life. I was a teacher for 21 years and then became a facilitator, training teachers in the field. In 1989 I discovered the International Future Problem Solving Program and was the first teacher to teach it in New Zealand. A couple of years later I became the New Zealand Director, a voluntary position I’ve held for 20 years and this has been my passion in life. Through the programme I have been able to slake my appetite for travel with 17 trips to the USA to attend the International Finals. I have wanted to travel since I was six and my great aunt worked as a stewardess on cruise ships around the world and I’ve been lucky enough to spend 13 months travelling in Europe and the UK, 3 months camping in the Australian Outback and various trips through the South Pacific and Asia. A last I have time to travel again and am enjoying having the time to rediscover my own beautiful country and am looking forward to once again venturing further afield.
I have chronicled my trips through scrapbooking and journal writing so my memories are always with me.
